Today's post is on Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 15 by Masami Tsuda. As it is the fifteenth in the series you need to have read the first fourteen to understand the story. The cover has Yukino and Soichiro on it. It is 200 pages long and is published by Tokyopop. The intended reader is someone who likes high school romances and drama. There is no language, implied sex, and mild violence in this volume. The story is told from the third person close of the main characters. There Be Spoilers Ahead.
From the back of the book- Soichiro's meetings with his birth mother continue to be a secret from everyone...especially Yukino. When his adoptive parents find out, they want him to be open with them, but how can he tell anyone about his memories of an abusive childhood? Instead, Soichiro turns to his best friend Asaba for support, while continuing to shut Yukino out. Will Soichiro finally tell Yukino the truth? Or will the consuming pain from his past destroy them both?
Review- At last Soichiro has begun to with what happened to him. He fights it all the way but in the end he faces himself and his past. That said it is a very hard read because Soichiro's mother abused him and we get to see it. But we get see really into his character and I think that is worth the hard read. Yukino is forced to prove that she really loves him no matter what; Soichiro also has to believe that. But we are not done with his mother just yet. Only six more volumes to go and more Drama ahead.
I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
